Military Spouses

Welcome, Spouses

We recognize the unique background, needs and strengths military spouses bring to KU and foster an environment that is welcoming and inclusive of all our military-affiliated students.

The KU Military-Affiliated Student Center in 345 Summerfield can offer military spouse students study and meeting spaces, a 24-7 lounge, and dedicated staff to provide support tailored to all military-affiliated students.
